Yes. I tried the Maple Syrup one in coffee with some extra cinnamon (I am addicted to cinnamon) and it was lovely. They sell syrups specifically for coffees in bigger glass bottles but I prefer my everyday coffee black and unsweetened so i haven't bothered with them. They have all the coffee shop style favourites.
I am trying to make decent ginger biscuits/ gingerbread. That's my next goal. I made some but they were not gingery enough - I think adding grated fresh ginger may be the key to that.
Who is he i have not heard of him?Yet another regime due to finishing 'Breakfast Is A Dangerous Meal' by Terence Kealy ... the blurb reads "Breakfast may be the most important meal of the day, but only if we skip it. Since Victorian times, we have been told to breakfast like kings and dine like paupers. In the wake of his own type 2 diabetes diagnosis, Professor Terence Kealey was given the same advice..."
I'll try anything once...
Weight: 14stones 11.8pounds Tum: 50 1/2inches
Breakfast: 7.8 @ 5.56am / Pint water with fibre / 1 Nescafe with dash milk
Lunch @ noon: 2 Poached Eggs, 1 slice white Toast with too much Anchor butter, 1 Red Onion, tons Garlic, tons Baby Tomatoes, 2 rashers Bacon (olive oil) / Pint water with meds.
Dinner @ 6ish: Pint water / White fish steamed, pile Cauli mashed with Anchor, lots Broccoli / Pint water
It's hard trying to eat within an 8 hour window... I was ravenous by noon!
As a Type 1 there isn't really anything stopping a near normal diet, I'm surprised you can do pasta as a lot struggle with that, as for spiking to 12.2 etc work on your bolus timings and maybe look at altering the amount of milk you take or switch to an alternative lower in carbs xxWow I’m amazed at what some people can eat - almost a normal diet. Yesterday I had a slice of multi seed toast (husband doesn’t like Burgen) with butter and marmite and several milky coffees - sent me to 12.2. Lunch was toast again with home made soup and dinner was tuna pasta with blueberries and Greek yoghurt
maybe I see things differently as someone who suffered complications with good control but spikes can contribute to long term health with diabetes and lead to complications so I myself having suffered from 2 already would limit those spikes to the best of my ability and adjust where neededI know pasta is supposed to be a no,no but occasional pasta and a bacon butty have both left me in my Libre green zone - only if it’s an OCCASIONAL treat. As for my milky coffee I just can’t imagine life without it and although I try to reduce the number my diabetes will just have to get used to it!!
I hadn't either but somebody on this forum mentioned either him or the book and of course I had to delve in and buy it off ebay. He's very all or nothing I think this fella, he says porridge is a killer! I'm absolutely ravenous, it's noon, I'm away to the kitchen...Who is he i have not heard of him?
